Derived from the French word "coller"( to glue), collage is a technique where the image is made from an assemblage of different parts, from various sources, to make a new whole. Although collage may have first emerged with the invention of paper, in China, it really became an art form in the 20th century.
Cubist painters like Braque and Picasso introduced collage into their works as did the Surrealists and DADA artists. Collage and photomontage techniques were also used by Bauhaus designers in the early 20th century.

Another illustrator who uses collage is Walter Vasconcelos...
